My mom and her family used to come here when they first opened and now I got to bring my daughter here. We enjoyed their delicious homemade ice cream twice on this trip! The first time we ate inside to enjoy the experience of Jaxson's. They bring you a nice bowl of popcorn to enjoy when you arrive and await... More

I heard about this place from someone who grew up in the area. I can't rate the food, I am sorry, only the dessert as we stopped in for ice cream after lunch having no idea they actually served food (hence the name, ice cream parlor). It was very crowded and I had to turn sideways to squeeze between the... More

The sundaes here are massive, gooey, and absolutely perfect! I recommend anything with their great homemade ice cream. We also ate here for the first time (rather than just ice cream) and the food portions are enormous. I could not finish my Turkey Reuben, as I had to save room for the massive three scoop mountain of PB Fudge coming... More

Wonderful service and a very interesting place with a huge variety of collectibles. Enormous tasty sandwiches and hot dogs. Creamy ice creams don't need any topping. They are sweet enough by themselves. They also offer sugar-free fruit frozen dessert for those who want to enjoy a beach parlor but cannot have sugar. A real treat when on vacation!

Went there with my family while on vacation.we waited about 45 minutes for a table for 6 but it was worth the wait.the portions were huge and the quality was high,it reminded me of going Jahns in queens when I was younger.whenever you are in Ft.Lauderdale I would recommend you try it.

We have been going to Jaxson's for over 35 years. Yesterday, my husband and I happened to be in the area, and couldn't resist a return visit. The ice cream is wonderful! This time, we stopped by in the afternoon, and were pleased that we could walk right in. Usually we go in the evening with our whole family (9... More

Took my family based on previous reviews and was not disappointed. We ordered their special, the "Original Kitchen Sink". Wow, what a desert. The kids were excited and left us with another great vacation memory. We will definitely return!

Everything is huge at Jaxson's, the food and the service were both good however the Ice cream is the best. Now I understand why people stand in line to have Ice cream there. You have plenty of flavors to chose from, we ordered the kitchen sink which was more than enough for a party of 8.

Ice cream at Jaxson's is one of South Florida's few traditions. Losing this restaurant would be a tragedy. This is a classic old school ice cream parlor. Old license plates, butter churns, and turn of the century metal toys adorn the walls. The entrance is filled with a huge variety of candies for sale. On a Saturday night we arrived... More
